Daniel Day Lewis as Lincoln? Maybe I'm stuck in the early '90s when it comes to him (never watched Gangs of New York so I probably am) but I just can't picture him as Lincoln. Doesn't mean anything, he might make a fair Lincoln.
There are two subjects that I personally would like to see. There would be plenty of the horror from the battle field, but in a non-battle field setting. First I think a film about Dr. James B. McCan and the Chimborazo Hospital would make a great film. There is alot of story line in the history of this hospital. Its close to the Confederate government, the wounded soldiers, the staff and the 256 employed slaves that Dr. McCan request be sent to help the confederate war effort rather than be sent back to thier masters on May 17th 1862. And don't forget the massive kitchen. Second I would like to see a film on Clara Barton. I think a film on her life story could be great. She to has such a great story line. If a film has done been made I am unaware of it. It is in the back of my mind that there has to be some thing about Ms. Barton.
